We write and produce all of our plays ourselves to ensure that they directly support the National Curriculum, are fun and original and that they meet our high standards.


Each of our plays springs to life through vibrant characters and engaging stories, interactive discussion and drama workshops and has a huge effect on pupil interaction, engagement with the topic and ongoing attainment.

Whether you're looking for fun Fairy Tales, interactive KS2 History plays, Numeracy, Literacy, Science shows or Christmas productions, then Hobgoblin is the Theatre in Education company for you!

Hobgoblin Theatre Company is firmly established as one of the UK's best touring theatre in education companies.
